Over at xda-developers they’re pathologically addicted to getting software to run on devices it was never intended to, and fed up of waiting for Sony Ericsson’s debut into the Android ecosystem, the XPERIA X10, they’ve focused instead on getting Android onto an earlier phone. Normally the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is found playing nicely with Windows Mobile, but you can now dual-boot it with that and Android 2.0.1.
There’s apparently been a fair bit of customization to get it all up and running with the X1’s hardware, but the touchscreen works and it’s not as sluggish as some hacks we’ve seen. So far everything bar the Bluetooth, camera, GPS and LCD auto-brightness function, but it’s still a work in progress.
